    This paper investigates a vertically differentiated product (VDP) line design problem in both a centralized and decentralized supply chain setting with one manufacturer and one retailer. We study how the product variety decision making in the decentralized setting affects the number of VDPs developed and produced by the manufacturer, as well as the number of products that the retailer will accept ...

    Despite the general agreement of the importance of resources and capabilities to strategic change, the broader question of how resources and capabilities affect strategic change itself remains unresolved. This research focuses on one characteristic of the process of strategic change, i.e., its speed. This study investigates the relationship between dynamic capabilities, the speed of strategic chan...

    Cross-functional teams are often seen as key for innovation projects. At the same time, functional diversity also introduces conflict, which may hinder a team's optimal performance. Most of the existing literature focuses on resolving and preventing these conflicts; however, conflict alone fails to explain why the contribution of these teams to performance is found to be absent in certain types of...

    Overlapping new product design process is widely applied in industry. However, selections of appropriate overlapping strategies based on the prediction of process performance can be problematic due to insufficient understanding on the dependence between design processes and its effect on the performance. This paper introduces a new model for a product design organization that is based on the evolv... View full abstract»

    Grade, due date, priority, and demand are attributes of magnetic material products. Planners are required to seek the optimal combination of production work orders to minimize cost and improve efficiency based on these attributes. The magnetic material group furnace optimization problem is a generalization of the 1-D bin-packing problem wherein bins of varying sizes are used. Bin sizes are determi... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a stylized framework for analyzing the design of government incentives for public interest goods (goods with externalities, such as electric vehicles.) We extend the newsvendor model with pricing to account for the consumption externality inherent in public interest goods and analyze the governments ability to coordinate their pricing and supply through the use of rebates and s...

  • Mergers and Acquisitions Strategies for Industry Leaders, Challengers, and Niche Players: Interaction Effects of Technology Positioning and Industrial Environment

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):80 - 88

    This study empirically investigates the merger and acquisition (M&A) strategies of focal firms by considering their market and technology position at the industry level. The results obtained using patents, firm M&A agreements, and the financial data of U.S. technology firms from 1997 through 2008 demonstrate how industry leaders, challengers, and niche players differ in their M&A strategic logic. ...

    Virtual communities have become ubiquitous and vital in nearly all professions. These communities typically involve voluntary participation, and given that these communities are not organization specific, community members' motivations for participation vary. In this study, we investigate the motivations of the members of a professional virtual community to engage in knowledge exchange. We synthes... View full abstract»

  • Alignment Between Service Innovation Strategy and Business Strategy and Its Effect on Firm Performance: An Empirical Investigation

    Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):100 - 113
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (410 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A well-planned service innovation strategy is recognized as a prerequisite for successful service innovation in organizations. However, prior studies on service innovation strategies struggle to provide guidance on successful service innovation, because they do not consider the alignment between service innovation strategy and business strategy. Furthermore, they did not consider conditions, such ... View full abstract»

  • SVM-Based Techniques for Predicting Cross-Functional Team Performance: Using Team Trust as a Predictor

    Due to the characteristics of cross-functional teams, trust is crucial for cross-functional teams to enhance performance. However, as a significant factor, trust had been neglected in previous team performance models. In this paper, we investigate whether trust can be used as a predictor of cross-functional team performance by proposing a prediction model. The inputs of the model are both team str...

  • Comparison of AHP and Monte Carlo AHP Under Different Levels of Uncertainty

    Despite the extensive application of Monte Carlo analytic hierarchy process (MCAHP) in various fields of decision making, its performance has not been compared with the classic analytic hierarchy process (AHP). Both of these methods are heavily affected by individual or group preferences and thus provide subjective rankings. Since the mere difference between their results does not necessarily warr...
